Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default Another PA longbeard falls

The PA guys are knockin them down as time is winding down.

18#, 15/16&1" spurs, 9.5" beard.

A few softs calls while he was going nuts off the roost, then he went silent for about 15-20 mintues. I gave a few clucks and he sounded off 60 yds away. Finally worked his way in to about 40 and that was all she wrote. Done by 20 after 6.

Way to go dude! It's always a little sweeter to take one in the closing days of the season isn't it? The one I took the other day was the first one I got in the last week of the season, and it felt a lot more special than all my previous birds. You feel like you really earn it when the heat is on and you know you only have a couple more mornings to get out.
